Investments

Our journey as angel investors started a couple of years after our first exit when we sold Century XXII Innovations Inc. to Össur in 2000.  We wanted to reinvest our success into other entrepreneurial ventures, "pay it forward". The current investment portfolio consists of a wide range of companies, all part of the future as we envisaged it at the time of the first investment.


We have joined as co-founders, at pre-seed and seed level, scale-ups and pre-IPO. Today we focus on tech-companies that want to improve and even change their entire industry. 
Our team is experienced in:
  • Taking an idea from start to exit
  • Disruptive business development
  • Patent and license strategies
  • Board work
  • Raising capital
  • Listing on the stock market
  • Exit to an industrial company
